So hard to say definitively, but '72-'74 has to get a ton of votes here. Europe '72 has it all, tons of mindbenders in 73 alone, great sound clarity and experimentation in 74. People will point to the '77 rockers and there's been buzz about the trippy stuff in '69 and its all good. Sometimes all I want is a spring '84/'85 or '90 or Summer '91 board to put me there. For me it depends on my mood. It really is too hard to decide, but you cant go wrong with this period in GD history.

I too love the '72-73 Dead, However my favorite period is Fall '79 to fall '82. I always liked Brent as the best of the fine keyboardists, and his first three years just rocked, especially 81

i must agree with you, '72-'74 are my absolute favorite grateful dead years. '72 is actually my favorite - you can hear them developing the new sound that would carry them for the next three years, with the one drummer, and integrating keith into the band. NOt enough can be said about Europe '72 in the spring, but my money is on the shows from the fall of '72, if you have not already, please check out EVERY SINGLE SHOW THEY DID THAT FALL, each night is a musical odyssey, you will not be disappointed. If that is too much to ask though, just get 9/21/72, 9/28/72, 10/18/72, and 12/31/72, in addition to buying dick's picks #11 9/27/72, and dp#23 9/17/72.
